25th AVA Annual Scientific Meeting

October 18, 2011         

AVA's 25th Annual Scientific Meeting was held October 3-6 in San Jose, California (preconference Oct. 2-3). Vascular Access professionals worldwide came to learn, network, and see the advances of teamwork and technology in our specialized field. From IVAN, we had twelve members in attendance: Gina Carley from Highland Park Hospital, Elena Skourletos & Carolyn Ertel from Lutheran General Hospital, Judith Damatan and Rose Koshy from Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Christine Mueller from Loyola Medical Center, Linda Moshure from FHN in Freeport, IL, April Swenson from Alexian Brothers Medical Center, Deb Nalian from Rush University Medical Center,Connie Girgenti from Provena St. Joseph, Chuck Sherline from MedComp Interventional, and Debbie Boyce from Bard Access. While checking out the vendor fair, we got to see Ryan Spatz from Carefusion, who got promoted and transferred to Colorado last year (he's now married and loving living in Colorado!). We enjoyed excellent presentations, saw an incredible array of new and upcoming products and had a chance to compare notes with vascular access specialists from across the United States, Italy, Great Britain and other countries. The October 29th meeting at Alexian Brothers Medical Center will highlight what was gleaned by those attending, as well as a special presentation by Connie Girgenti and Deb Nalian on the posters they presented at AVA. Don't miss it!
